sinckler has emerged as one of the stars but his final would finish after just a few stars but his final would finish afterjust a few minutes. england robbed of one of the most important players. pollard then hurting them on the scoreboard. the favourites seemed rattled, was the magnitude getting to them? england's only points ina getting to them? england's only points in a tight first half coming from the beat of owen farrell. they had reached this stage by taking their game to a new level but not here. south african defence way too strong and then capitalising on english ill discipline. england were in trouble, penalised time and time again as the south african pack began to dismantle their scrum. no tea m began to dismantle their scrum. no team had trailed at half—time in a final and come back to win, could england defy history? not like this, makazole mapimpi starting and finishing a rapid attack to score his country is first ever try in the final. south africa had been labelled boring in the build—up, so
1:03 pm
much for that. cheslin kolbe celebrating his return with a devastating dance to the try line. heartbreak is england, this their third defeat in a final, their form had deserted them when it mattered most. i'm proud of what we've done, how far we've come, it showed with the fight we had in the second half but credit to south africa, they we re very but credit to south africa, they were very good today. we come from different backgrounds, different races and we came with one goal and wanted to achieve it. i really hope we've done that for south africa's top white south africa's first world cup victory on home soil gave rugby one of its most iconic images. now siya kolisi provided another. a seminal moment for his sport and his country. south africa united as world champions once again. millions of rugby fans were watching, in england, south africa and around the world, as the springboks claimed their third world cup title. rupert wingfield hayes reports.
1:04 pm
as the final whistle blue in yokohama, half a world away in johannesburg the streets erupted in celebration. the people of the rainbow nation dancing and singing together. cheering for south african fans who made the long trip to japan, it was also a moment of pure ecstasy. how does it feel? amazing, amazing, amazing! did you come herejust feel? amazing, amazing, amazing! did you come here just for this? yes! love it! we love the people here also, everything here was amazing! huge disappointment here to england tonight but what a night for south africa and what a night forjapan, which has hosted this amazing world cup and now has thousands of new by cup and now has thousands of new rugby fans. these young japanese
1:05 pm
fa ns rugby fans. these young japanese fans looked almost as excited as their new south african friends. before the world cup they told me they had never watched a rugby match before. why do you like south africa? because they are an amazing team! in yokohama and back in england, the faces of the fans said it all. the nations rugby team had come so it all. the nations rugby team had come so close, it all. the nations rugby team had come so close, even it all. the nations rugby team had come so close, even defeating the mighty all blacks. today they were systematically beaten. from the start we didn't look like we were going to win it and just absolutely gutted stockley south africa played really well. i was really disappointed england didn't win. tonight has been a huge victory for by. tonight has been a huge victory for rugby. the japanese people have welcomed rugby with open arms. new friendships have been made and many new rugby fans created. chi chi izundu is with some very disappointed fans
1:06 pm
at harpenden rugby club. first let's hear from milton nkosi who is at a fan zone in johannesburg. milton, what a magnificent moment for the rainbow nation. yes, indeed. their victory was made so yes, indeed. their victory was made so much sweeter by having the very first black captain of the springboks to lift the cup. south africans know that this victory is beyond that pitch, it's beyond the scoreboard, it's about bringing a nation that was divided by the nightmare of apartheid which ended 25 years ago together. south africans come together when there is a victory like this and it gives the country a bit of momentum, especially after some of the tragedies we've seen like xenophobic violence and huge unemployment that persists in south africa. so, these people are celebrating, they are here with me. what is your feeling about this? i think it's done a
1:07 pm
greatjob for the about this? i think it's done a great job for the country, about this? i think it's done a greatjob for the country, all 58 million of us are behind the team, so million of us are behind the team, so excited. what about you? we are just so excited, the resilient spirit of south africa, we are so happy. thank you. they are happy and proud. they are happy and very proud but we are here with some disappointed fans at harpenden rugby club where at least four of today's players trained as youngsters. you are disappointed but still proud stockley yes, disappointing i think. south africa played brilliantly, overall england played really well. in my opinion england were more interested in beating the best rather than being the best and unfortunately paid the price today. how do you feel? you went to school with some of the players. south africa beat us in all the areas today but they played their hearts out and we're so happy for them. how
1:08 pm
do you feel about it? we didn't get the result but the boys who went to oui’ the result but the boys who went to our school and play today inspired matt and i and a few players around us, hopefully they will continue to inspire younger players and the area will continue to improve in rugby what we have left now is celebrations and commiserations. these guys are going to lead us off ina nice these guys are going to lead us off in a nice round of swing low. # swing low, sweet chariot labour coming forth to carry me home... studio: with that music ringing in oui’ studio: with that music ringing in our ears, studio: with that music ringing in ourears, thank you. let's speak to our sports editor dan roan at the stadium in yokohama. dan — huge disappointment for england — but a massive moment for south africa. absolutely. this final will always
1:09 pm
be remembered for the power notjust of south africa's pack but also the potency and impact of the image of siya kolisi, a man born into poverty ina siya kolisi, a man born into poverty in a township, lifting the webb ellis trophy. when south africa won the world cup for the first time in 1995 they only had one black player in theirteam, now 1995 they only had one black player in their team, now they have a black captain and far more representative squad. as a symbol of hope and reconciliation for a country still scarred by apartheid, it does take some beating. as for england, the tea m some beating. as for england, the team that outplayed new zealand last week and in the semifinal didn't turn up. maybe they weren't allowed to buy south africa's play. it underlines the fact that while there has been progress, there still far from the finished article under eddiejones from the finished article under eddie jones and will from the finished article under eddiejones and will be devastated. when you consider england crashed out of the last world cup on home soil in the group stage, they've come an awfully long way and i think they will look back in time very
1:10 pm
fondly at this very memorable tournament and i think the future is bright for this young and talented side. we now have to hope eddie jones says he will stay in the job. tonight they will reflect on a missed opportunity for greatness. thank you. the day's other main news now, and the government has suspended fracking in england for the forseeable future. the ban comes after a technical report said it was not possible to predict the probability or size of severe earth tremors caused by the extraction of shale gas from the ground. labour, the liberal democrats and the green party have called for the ban to be made permanent. our business correspondent katie prescott reports. it's been one of the most controversial issues of the last decade. fracking — the process of getting gas from rocks using pressurised water and chemicals. but the resulting earthquakes and disruption have infuriated local communities
1:11 pm
and environmental campaigners. they're delighted by today's news. i'm absolutely delighted. we knew that a decision was going to come out last night, midnight in fact, but we daren't hope that it is as good as it is. ok, it is nota ban, but it is a moratorium, and i can't see how the moratorium can be lifted until they can prove that fracking can be done safely. the government had hoped that sites like these would change our energy landscape, providing an abundant, home—grown source of fuel that would reduce our gas imports and cut carbon emissions. but now they've changed their mind, stopping just short of a permanent ban. there is no doubt that extracting more natural gas in the united kingdom would be very attractive, but we've always been clear, we can only do that if it can be done safely. we will follow the science, so in future should the ability to be certain about seismic events and so on, we will look at it again.
1:12 pm
but labour says they don't trust the government's u—turn, and fear it could be an election ploy. today the regulator says it's not safe, because it can't predict how many earthquakes fracking will cause, and it says that the impact to local communities is unacceptable. as a result, companies must stop their operations. fracking's industry body says... the big question now is whether the industry will be willing to invest any more money here in the hope that the science will one day find in their favour and the regulation could change. katie prescott, bbc news. trees and scaffolding have been blown over and transport disrupted after high winds of more
1:13 pm
than 80mph hit parts of the uk. the met office has issued a number of rain and wind warnings across the south of england and wales, while a band of heavy rain could affect northern scotland. those attending or organising bonfire and fireworks events this evening have been warned to take extra care. you can see more on all of today's stories on the bbc news channel. the next news on bbc one is at 5:50pm. bye for now. hello. you're watching the bbc news channel. it is now almost 1:15pm. let's get more on that decision by the government to halt fracking in england. earlier, i spoke to the green pa rty‘s co—leader jonathan ba rtley. he gave a cautious welcome to the government's announcement. this is a moratorium, it is very welcome, after ten years of hard campaigning and a massive tribute to all those people who have been out in all weathers protesting outside.
1:14 pm
what we need to see is an absolute commitment from the government never to bring fracking back. we need to think in a new way about gas and heating. we need to see a green new deal which decarbonise our heat supply. let's get those boilers out of homes, replace it with ground source heat pumps, let's have a massive investment in cutting gas demand, that is what will sort our problems, not waiting to see whether fracking will be made safe. this is a huge change you're talking about, but without fracking, we are looking at importing huge levels of supplies and given the global situation, isn't that a danger? the real danger is the fracking fantasy that the government has pursued for ten years. while there's an inertia around dealing with all the boilers that are in our homes. we need to deal with the demand. we need to super insulate homes, cut the gas demand, but start the programme of stripping out gas boilers, make it possible to get that a low—cost clean energy
1:15 pm
into every house can be millions of homes in the uk that need to have that energy. we have only got until 2030, the government's target is 2050 to deal with the climate emergency, that is way too long. we have to decarbonise by 2030, so we should start the action right now, not in five ten years. and if those long—term changes are more difficult to drive through, what are your alternative means to delivering clean energy? we have to have that green new deal, the massive investment in renewables, the new economics foundation estimates that we can get over six times our annual electricity demand just from offshore renewables. when you see tidal lagoons on the west coast, six of them could provide as much power as hinckley. hinckley will not come online for years, that is far too long to wait. that is locking us into a terrible dealfor years to come. we have to have that renewable energy revolution, but also cut the gas demand.
1:16 pm
how much do you think this is about, ahead of election, the conservative party positioning themselves? all the other parties have said is a ban is what should happen, this is a temporary pause. there has to be a ban, you have to be realistic about the timing, a lot of those... a small number of fracking sites tend to be in marginal constituencies, places like preston new road. the tories are very right, it is externally unpopular. in terms of public opinion over the last ten years is the more people learn about fracking, the less they like it. the government is announcing this at an opportune moment going into a general election, but we need to see unequivocal and clear commitment by the government to ban fracking now and forever. the leader there over the green party. 30,000 people across the uk are being invited tojoin a new citizens assembly to consider how to tackle climate change. invitation letters are being sent out on behalf of six commons select committees, which are working
1:17 pm
together on the project. the government has set a target of achieving "net—zero" emissions by 2050. let's get more now on the defeat of england at the hands of south africa in the rugby world cup. england lost 32—12 in the yokohama stadium. south africa have now lifted the webb ellis cup for a second time. many pubs opened early today to allow fans to watch the match there. earlier, i spoke to leigh milner, who was at a pub in central london, shortly after the match ended. a disappointing score for england, it isa a disappointing score for england, it is a pointing score for the fans here, but not for this lodge, because they are key ways. you are happy, right? —— they are kiwis. trust me to pick the table full of kiwis. this has been rang packed in central london, or trying to get a glimpse of the game, unsurprisingly,
1:18 pm
more england shirts than south africa, but it doesn't matter now. let's have a chat with some of the fa ns let's have a chat with some of the fans here. now, don't get too emotional. what did you think about that performance? hats off to south africa, they turned up and were amazing, they deserved to win, didn't seem like we really got going from the first whistle, kyle sinckler getting injured was not ideal, but south africa deserved it. what went wrong? last week was phenomenal. i don't think we have a chance to get into the game. they we re chance to get into the game. they were so chance to get into the game. they were so physical, they played how they wanted to play, they got all they wanted to play, they got all the penalties. the saving grace is that we are absolutely destroyed new zealand in the semifinal. so that is what i will remember. that is enough. has been good for you guys? you were here at eight o'clock morning, right? it's been a great
1:19 pm
day, great —ish, it could have been better. the guinness is good. that help them. you better scarper, because i'm about to talk to a kiwi. you are a kiwi? i am. we were actually hoping england would win. about some of our girls over here where supporting south africa.|j held a grudge, so yes, not into england, sorry. we didn't mean it, i promise, maybe next time. we were hoping for a second—half comeback, quite a few people thought it would happen, but it never really was to happen. we are all kiwis, the spigot with us. where you all here at eight o'clock this morning? may be around half time. thank you so much. are you going to going to celebrate, but
1:20 pm
obviously not? commiserate, yeah, i'll probably have some more guinness, we have to get over it. thank you forjoining me. the reaction here is disappointing, and as it will be for thousands of fans, right across the country, who are in pubs or at home. i'm certainly disappointed, but that they way it goes. yes, it certainly does. disney is joining the world of tv streaming to challenge the likes of netflix. in his only uk interview, disney's boss bob iger has been speaking to the bbc‘s media editor, amol rajan. earlier this year, the avengers: endgame from marvel entertainment became the biggest—grossing movie in history. 0k. who here hasn't been to space? marvel is part of a bigger media giant, the walt disney company, known as disney. over the past 15 years, it has been on an acquisition spree
1:21 pm
under the leadership of bob iger. mr iger, who considered a run for the us presidency, bought pixar animation off stevejobs, lucasfilm off star wars creator george lucas and, last year, in one of the biggest deals in media history, 21st century fox from rupert murdoch. why do you think rupert murdoch wanted to sell? well, i think the primary reason is that he looked at what was going on in the world of media, and all the disruption, and he didn't believe that the hand that they had was a strong as it needed to be. it's that simple, and he didn't have a solution. but what are the underlying trends reshaping the media industry which makes those sort of mega—acquisitions necessary? well, i think if you look at today's media landscape, whether you are in the uk or the united states, or in many other places in the world, first of all, it starts with content. content is king. quality stands really tall in a sea of choice. and then secondly, get content that is so valuable, so important, so loved by consumers,
1:22 pm
that they'll access it or buy it almost any way they possibly can. it was rival netflix that pioneered streaming, which allows you to watch what you want, when you want. in the time that i've been on the throne, what have i actually achieved? # for the times, they are a—changin'...#. apple tv+ launched in london yesterday, with hollywood starsjennifer aniston and reese witherspoon promoting its biggest production. this winter, several technology giants are launching their own streaming services. disney's own service, disney+, launches here next spring. i think netflix is a volume play with a lot of quality in it, and they created the market in the direct—to—consumer space with video. and we come in with a different play. it's much more branded, less volume, and there's plenty of room for us to occupy space as well, and not... i mean, it may to some extent be at their expense,
1:23 pm
but not necessarily. there may be room for people to have more than one subscription. on current evidence, that seems a safe bet. amol rajan, bbc news. the indigenous koysaan people of south africa have secured a deal to be paid a regular income from the sale of roy—boss tea, which they'd used for centuries — before it became a commercial product. future sales of roy—boss tea, sometimes called ‘red bush' tea, will generate thousands of dollars a yearfor the koy—saan people. rich preston reports. south african wilderness, home to this little red plant. a red plant which rakes in around $60 million a year, and accounts for about 10% of the global herbal tea market. now, some of that money will go to the people who discovered it. this area,
1:24 pm
around three hours north of cape town, is the only area where the plant is grown. the khoisan people we re plant is grown. the khoisan people were using it for centuries, before it was commercialised under colonial rule. but an agreement between the khoisan people and the council means they will now get 1.5% of the price. this has huge ramifications for the indus —— indigenous world, and many where people can be brought under one agreement, and it is a world first and it is important for that region. the deal should bring the khoisan around $160,000 a year, but it is not all about the money. this was very much a dignity issue, and that the khoisan are going to be using the plant. the first knowledge was very important, and right that
1:25 pm
is really what they struggled with. the income will have new generations of the indigenous people who still live in the rural areas where their a ncestors first live in the rural areas where their ancestors first discovered this —— sweet taste of this little red rooibos bush. several thousand properties have been left without power as strong winds sweep across the south and south west of the country. gusts have also blown over trees and there's been travel disruption. the environment agency has issued 22 flood warnings while police are urging people not to make unnecessary journeys. they're also warning that organisers of firework displays should be aware of the dangers of high winds. i wonder what it's like out there. so it —— sarah keith lucas will be looking at it. my sun is travelling to play rugby and bonfire night later. what is in store for us all? it isa later. what is in store for us all? it is a real case of mixed fortunes out there, the weather is causing
1:26 pm
headaches, low pressure is in charge which is bringing us the strong wind and heavy rain that we have seen. not everywhere is seeing it, in fa ct, not everywhere is seeing it, in fact, if you are under the area of low pressure fact, if you are under the area of low pressure across fact, if you are under the area of low pressure across central parts of the uk, they are, the wind is not as strong and there is not as much rainfall. it is really for northern scotla nd rainfall. it is really for northern scotland and southern england and south wales that we are seeing the strongest of the wind. gales, heavy rain, a lot of travel disruption, and lots of firework displays are cancelled for this evening. here is the area of low pressure that brings u nsettled the area of low pressure that brings unsettled weather. lots of isobars to the south of that, so through the afternoon and into the evening, quite widely inland, could be 60 having 70 mph on the coast and windy and wet across northern scotland as well. plenty of showers on the cards, they will gradually ease as we move through the course of tonight. by tomorrow morning, temperature about 6—8, frost not a problem, but there could be mist and fog patches. looking at tomorrow, a
1:27 pm
different day for today. we have low pressure around but not as windy as it has been. much lighter wind through the day tomorrow, still some blustery showers, especially across northern and eastern parts of scotland, eastern england, and some more showers pushing into the south—west. tomorrow looks like a much better day for the likes of northern ireland, north wales, down towards the south—east of england as well. certainly, that wind will ease overnight, but do be prepared for more disruption in the south with the strength of the wind for the rest of today.
1:28 pm
1:29 pm
hello. this is bbc news. the headlines: south africa have won the rugby world cup final after convincingly beating england 32—12 injapan. full twojubilation in beating england 32—12 injapan. full two jubilation in cape town as the springboks when the trophy for the third time, the first with a black captain. so near yet so far for england fans, who take comfort in the team coach's achievements. south africa deserved it. it was a disappointing game to watch because there was not enough by watch because there was not enough rugby being played. it isjust a game of rugby, it is all good. and the government halts fracking for gas in england until there is enough evidence that the controversial process is safe.
